My mother was losing her mind. And I had no idea how to deal with it. On one hand, I hated her for not being strong enough to deal with something like this. On the other, I felt bad for hating her and wanted to do everything I could to save her.
I actually stumbled upon this website looking up ways to commit suicide.
And I am so glad I did. I connected with a HopeCoach and she listened…just the way I needed her to. At the time I was sitting in front of the computer with a bottle of Promethazine tablets in my hand. The HopeCoach was so understanding and she helped me to look at what I would be leaving behind if I died. It was an incredible thing she did for me. She even prayed with me.
The Hopeline saved my life.
